C7: Is it possible to beat the new school fraction with classic wave sailing on classic boards?
Josh Angulo: Maybe I can better answer this afternoon :) If you get a young kid that does all the tricks and put him on a single fin and he’d still do all the tricks, just bigger. I’m surprised how hard the young guys work to make windsurfing even more difficult by the equipment they ride. I see things in waveboard design that boggle my mind at how much it doesnt make sense and the crazier thing is the industry pushes it and then wonders why our sport is thinning out . Give me a board that planes easy, cuts through chop, goes upwind, jumps well, and holds strong in waves……. does anything really beat a cleanly shaped single fin for overall windsurf performance?
Okay, we have to admit, that we are not a big fan of the over-engineering, that is usually going on at North Sails, but gripping the tailend of the boom is something, what we are waiting for since the old Tecnolimits days.
If only there would be an outside tailend option too.
Too bad it is only avaliable with the platinum series. :(
